Professional's Choice
SMX Dressage Girth
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Professional's Choice
Model: SMX Dressage Girth
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I ordered this girth for my Arabian because his previous girth had no elastic and this one was not supposed to cause galls. I recall paying around $50 for a 20" dressage girth.

Likes: There is NOTHING that I like about this girth.

Dislikes: During a 30 minute ride, the girth rubbed galls 3" in diameter on both sides of my horse. I had to stop riding him for 2 weeks to let him heal. The supposedly "no rub" backing gave him no protection at all.

Quality: The girth seemed well-constructed.

Summary: I will never use any girth made by Professional's Choice ever again. This girth was marketed as one that would not cause galls, but it gave my horse the worst galls he's ever had in a relatively short amount of time. And I know others who have had the same problem with this girth.
